Holly Morning Huddle: Short Side, ‘2 Much 2 Soon’, Leads 3 Algos

Jul 18, 2016

Good morning. Welcome to our Open House all this week!

As of today, Monday, July 18, 2016, the return from my trading performance since January 1 stands at +39.7 accumulated points vs the benchmark SPY’s performance of +10.3 points over the same period. On Friday my performance jumped +1.32 from Tuesday on just 3 trades while the SPY dropped -0.29.  

Today’s a new day and I am prepared for the market open with 3 themes/strategies I determined overnight will best match what the market throws at us. I may or may not use all these intraday strategies depending on whether or not all the criteria for each are satisfied.
Of these 3 strategies selected today 2 are Long, bullish in outlook. 1 is Short, bearish in outlook. Ready for anything. The lone short strategy, ‘Too Much Too Soon’, in the list below has the highest Win %s based on optimized, backtested scenarios. On Friday it was the strategy with the highest Win % but it did not fire off a trade. Today may be different.
Here are the algos:

No. Win % Strategy L/S
1 64.8 On Support Long
2 61.0 Sunrise Mover Long
3 72.4 Too Much Too Soon Short
